Sheet Music/BASIC listing of "Fool on the Hill"
is a reproduction of the listing of the Intel 8080 instructions programmed by Steve Dompier to play "Fool in the Hill" (the Beatles) on his Altair through radio interference on an close by AM radio as reported in newsletter issue number three of the Homebrew Computer Club.

See this article below along with a delightful drawing by Steve which he provided to us on November 3, 2005 for our Homebrew@30 event held on November 5, 2005:
